    Just in case people forgot about emu_kidid and his awesome SD-Boot application, let me remind you that SD-Boot 1.0 coming soon with much improvements.

    Source

    You just need to pick up a SDGecko or make one yourself (which is not that easy). Unfortunately SD-Boot still needs a disc in the drive, but he is planning to remove the Disc Drive for a SD only Mod.

    So yeah, loading GC games through SD/SDHC [​IMG]

    Ok, what tool do I need to use to put the gamecube compilations together, does this require any other ios or specific versions of an ios, and where can I get it?

    Oh, and is there a reliable file manager that can copy games from usb drives to the sd card in the wii?

    You need an app called GCOS, or GCMulti to shrink the GC games and make a compilation disc. Just use windows to copy/move things [​IMG] If you really want to do it on the Wii (it will be slow) use WiiExplorer

    Does any1 have any idea as to whether this will eventually work without an sd gecko? I'm considering purchasing one just for this app, but if it will work without one in less than a year or two, then I can wait.

    I realize most people prolly wont have an answer to this question but I thought I'd ask anyways. (And yes I've read the million posts of people saying GC games will never be played off USB hard drive... but that was before these recent developments.)

    @xflak my best educated guess would be no, without some sort of breakthrough, cause this technology has been around since original GC if im not mistaken, since it works from the gamecumbe hardware (save slots). Just looks like its being revamped/bug fixed cause before compatibility sucked and it was quite slow

    That being said i think its anyones guess if it will happen, right now everyone says impossible it will never happen, but as i recall 1yr~ ago everyone flamed anyone who wanted to play a burned disc in there wii without a modchip saying it was impossible ^^

    I tried ramming a live Gecko in my Wii the other day, but it was having none of it! It ran off and I have not seen it since! [​IMG]

    Did you use a condom? You've got to be carefull about using live gecko's...they might have bugs. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    *drumroll*

    ...

    *dead silence*

    You know...bugs? As in...
    Ah, forget it. I've got to work on my joke repertoire. [​IMG]



    On-topic: isn't emu_kidid the same guy who's working on both wii64 and wiisx? If so...wow. Even one of those projects seem like something huge to actually make. But three? I mean...wow.

    *is impressed*

    Do you have to shrink it or is it optional?

    Gambia, The
    Reading the comments from:
    http://emukidid.blogspot.com/2010/02/sd-bo...tures-list.html
    might be interesting for the one or other here:

    So if you have a wii don't expect this to work with all its features on Wii. Loading backup discs is one feature for example, the wii GC loader patches the read calls to DVD-Video calls for the wii dvd drive, this one will do something different. The question is if the GC is emulated well enough to have the same exploit he uses to read from DVD-Rs. I highly doubt it, but i have no idea about loading from SD Gecko.

    To me the fact that he develops for GC only explains why the USB Gecko loader doesn't work for most people, the simple question which cMIOS to use for it is even wrong by design...

    Anyways, all we can do it wait and see what/if this will work on wii with this.

    Got the Wii/WODE/Gecko ready and waiting looking forward to this app only thing better would be if anyone chose to add wode support to existing loaders.
